01 Works, RELIGIOUS ART - Contemporary Interpretation of the Bible! With Footnotes - 10h

Deborah Stevenson, United States
The Sin Of Shame
Size: 8.4 H x 7.7 W x 0.1 in

Shame has plagued us since Adam and Eve bit into the fruit and realized they were naked. Their first instinct was to hide from each other and God (Genesis 3:7–11). They now stood guilty before God and were vulnerable to each other. They were sinful, weak, damaged people living in a dangerous world. They found themselves exposed to other sinners’ judgment and rejection. More on Shame

Deborah Stevenson was born in Washington, DC. She grew up in Tokyo, went to high school in Baltimore, and got her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. She lived for many years on the West Coast, and returned to the East Coast, where she lived in Brooklyn, NYC until 2015, when she relocated to the coastal town of Belfast, Maine. 

Artist Statement: "My first medium is oil, and I have been a painter for nearly 30 years. I began composing collage pieces in earnest 5 years ago, working with material in magazines, books, newspapers, etc. A life-long interest in Eastern philosophy and Jungian psychology have contributed to my fascination with allegory and symbology. Themes that recur in my work express metaphorically my exploration of concepts of power, beauty, the Feminine, and mysterious archetypal conjunctions. More than anything else, the process requires of me that I pay attention, and to be in a receptive state, so as to be ready to capture the dialogue." More on Deborah Stevenson
